I loved the idea behind the collection, and I loved that a writers group got together and made this happen.

It's one of those things I don't want to crit too hard because I appreciate the enthusiasm behind it and there aren't many reviews in GR for it, so I'll say: a few of the stories were more engaging than the others and I would not have read some of them if I didn't get such a kick out of the "set in Virginia" theme, but I only left one unfinished.

Author Review

As they say, "Virginia isn't just for lovers, it's also for mysteries."

Nineteen Virginia-based authors dish up stories set all around the Old Dominion. These mysteries are set in well-known locations from Appalachia to the Eastern Shore, and they range from the Civil War to modern times. Murder runs amok in Virginia.

My personal favorites from the anthology, not including my own story (pen name Kristin Kisska) "A Colonial Grave", a cold case murder set in Colonial Williamsburg, are "Coming Clean" set along the I-95 corridor, "Spring Cleaning" set near Mill Mountain, and "Corked for Murder" set in a Chesapeake wine shop.

Check out the fun! It's a killer good time.
